Arianna Dada is a first year Phd Student in Civil Engineering and a member in the Department of Civil, Environmental, Architectural Engineering and Mathematics at University of Brescia. Her doctoral research investigates the efficiency of the natural based solutions for flood risk mitigation in urban areas through the exploratory modelling. She takes a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses the fields of architecture, society, history, urban planning, and engineering. She graduated at the University of Brescia, Italy, with a master’s degree in Architectural Engineering. With her master thesis project, she evaluated how to adopt an integrated approach to enhance urban flood resilience in Parma, a northern Italy city. During her course of study, she took part as student to several international events such as the International Summer School “Intensive Studio Project: Shanghai, Waterfront Renovation” in 2012, at the Tongji University of Shanghai, China; the International Summer School “Natural Disaster” in 2017 at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia where she also participated in 4th World Landslide Forum “Landslide research and risk reduction for advancing culture of living with natural hazards”. Before graduation she spent three months at the Monash University of Melbourne, Australia, where she started to take an interest in Australian Concept of Water Sensitive Cities and issues related to sustainable urban drainage. She is currently working on a hydraulic-hydrologic invariance project for the city of Brescia.
